're supposed to do. if there is no notice about any discretionary action, that notice will incorporate notice about the c-e-q-a that would, you know -- >> but you could appeal c-e-q-a on nonplanning related permits. i just want to -- >> yes. so, i guess -- so, in terms of this argument, looking at the first discretionary action, can you describe what currently are considered -- you said not all permits are discretionary permits. so, could you outline some of the permits that are discretionary? maybe the city attorney could do that. >> i'll take a start. i think the simplest thing is to talk about the things that are in the planning department's domain. conditional use permit is a discretionary permit. a building permit is maybe the most widespread for exemptions. but there are many departments that take discretionary actions. the park takes actions. mta takes actions, puc takes actions. some of those are discretionary, some are not. all that are discretionary subject to c-e-q-a. >> and did we look at -- in our recommendation, you know, i think there is a lot to be said about having a window o
points, the main points you made. in terms of this first discretionary action, someone who plays games, hides the ball does it at their own peril. if they don't give us the project in its entirety, they are going to be recycling through the process. and if somehow they slip through the cracks of the process, they are going to lose in court because they're doing piece metionv of the project and they're not giving us the entire of the project. piecemealing. * [speaker not understood], in this is where i agree with a number of the speakers, this city doesn't have the authority to change the legal standard review. >> and i'm not arguing about that, no. i wasn't arguing about that. in terms of discretionary action, if that's going to stay in the legislation, i would prefer that discretionary's planning or building department action because i think that those are the areas where the notice happens, building permits or planning permits. >> commissioner antonini. >> thank you, mr. wyco. you might as well come back up again. sorry. i have a question. my questions revolve mostly around situation
us. >> no announcements. >> item two. >> item two presents november 6, 2012 meeting action item. >> any comments or changes to the minute? seeing none, public comment on item two. seeing none. public comment closed. can we give motion to approve the minutes? can we do that without objection that will be the order. >> thank you. >> thank you good morning my name is collin. i'm a transportation planner with the authority and i'll be presenting this item number three which is a contract for our -- this item starts on page sevenof your packet. we are required every two years to update the congestion management program and produce a report and that report includes a monitoring effort of the auto speeds as well as levels of service or los on the city's designated cmt network. which is about 200 miles of arterial streets which is 35 miles city freeway network. in addition to that, we also -- specifically required we do transit speed monitoring along the cmt network of bus speeds. this contract is to essentially provide for the next round of that monitoring effort. just a little backgro
a project requires legislative action by the board of supervisors whether it's a zoning change or special use district. and where you also have, of course, c-e-q-a determination. right now when we have zoning that comes to the board for a project, there can be a separate c-e-q-a appeal fired. but that appeal can be filed late, it will disrupt the board's process. i'll give you an example of that. when the booker t. washington affordable youth housing project came to the board, we had to approve a special use district for that project. at the last minute, i think the day before or the day of our land use hearing, a c-e-q-a appeal was filed. we were required to take the entire matter off calendar and it delayed our consideration by two months. this legislation would provide that if the board is required to legislate for a project to happen, the board of supervisors becomes the c-e-q-a decision maker and the c-e-q-a item automatically comes to the board and is agendized along with the underlying zoning change or whatever the legislative change is and the board considers them, the two items t
have and will take responsibility for their action and therefore they had free will and they're going to take the consequences for that. the problem is when we start actually believing the rhetoric, we actually start believing what we're saying, if you think that, if you use free will normatively, used as a value judgment about when somebody should have to take responsibility and you use it that way in the criminal law, what happens is it starts bleeding over into what i call thequasi- criminal law which is civil commitment. in the civil commitment area, we also use this notion of free will that we generally call volitional control, but we use it in the classic example today because it's so high profile are sexually violent predators. sexually violent predators under constitution the supreme decisions in kansas versus hendricks and kansas versus crane, the supreme court said that under the constitution in order to civilly commit, to not criminally, but to civilly commit a sexually violent predator, you have to demonstrate two independent factual constructs. one is you have to demonstr
can plan for hearings through december and that would be before what we've been told board action would be. >> well, let me think about it. go ahead. >> commissioner antonini. >> thank you. so, commissioner sugaya, would you be interested in another hearing possibly? [laughter] >> let me put forth -- >> really. >> let me put forth what my idea would be and let's see if it has support. and parenthetically, there are some additions of things in this. i i understand the negative declarations now would have to be appealed to us first, which was not necessarily the case. so, there's more process added in some of these. i would move that we recommend to the supervisor support, but with these modifications. longer, but clear, clear appeal periods, not to exceed three months from whatever we determine to be the date of the first complete approval document. and what i mean by that is something that you can begin to build on. if you get a plumbing permit, if you get, you know, the very first permit that you're going to be building something that really doesn't give the public much of an inp
for your hard work. the next item on the agenda is discussion and possible action regarding amendments to cfro. first let me check with the commissioners, are we okay going forward? does anybody need a short break? >> fine. >> fine. >> mr. st. croix would you like to introduce this agenda item? >> so during the summer days of the mayoral campaign, the most recent mayoral campaign, we had issues that presented themselves to us that were new to san francisco in that there were campaign -- let me take that word back. there were committees organized to draft ed lee to run for mayor. he was at the time considered to be a caretaker who was to fill the vacancy until the next election could be held. there were at least three sump committees, i think maybe four and some of them raised good sums of money. and my concern was that they were functioning as campaigns without actually being campaigns. the commission decided that they weren't campaigns under current law. but i think the commission agreed that the raising and spending of that size of money was not designed by the voters to be so

that an appeal is happening. the proposed amendments would deem valid prior c-e-q-a approval actions which could force project appellants to file lawsuits even before the board reaches decisions on their appeals in order to avoid c-e-q-a's strict statute of limitations. this could subject the city to additional and unnecessary expensive litigation. and finally, the proposed amendments would force members of the public to file two appeals and pay two appeal fees of $500 each in order to seek review proposed negative declarations before the board of supervisors. i also want to conclude by noting that this move comes in the context of a tax on the epa, couldn't clean air pact, clean water act endangered species act and [speaker not understood] law here in california c-e-q-a. and the hope the city of san francisco would be rather than looking at making c-e-q-a and public participation more limited, looking at ways in which to defend our hallmark [speaker not understood]. thank you. >>> president fong, commissioners, matt reagan with the bay area council. we're a business sponsored public policy advo
final selection of an option or any further implementing action. we'll come back in the spring with those. with that, i like to take any questions but i also like to note that we have staff here in the audience. we have murphy, tasha bartholomew. thank you. >> thank you for your presentation and all your work. i appreciate the outreach and community. those go into comments. any member of the public like to comment. we'll do three minutes. >> tony kelly i'm a member. i also went to the committee meeting last month on this subject. i think there's a couple point that's are rather under reported by cta staff. i want to call them to your attention here before you decide to move forward or not. the first is -- the level of opposition to option one, the berm at the last committee meeting was pretty substantial. actually a little bit heated about the closure of quint street and berm option one is the only one that closes quint street. that got a lot of heat. i think the staff report that to you fully. the reason why i think that's important might be here. you just saw this -- it was j
could go on to our second item please. >> item two present december 6, 2012 meeting, action item. >> questions on the minutes, up for public comment and minutes. we'll close public comment. motion from commissioner farrell and seconded by commissioner cohen. item number four. >> committee report, this is an information item. >> item number three. >> good morning. since the advisory committee did not meet in november. any comment or concern sure this meeting will be shared with the board at the december 11th meeting. close public comment and move to our next item. >> item four, this is advisory committee. this is action item. >> good morning courtney with the authority. this item begins own page 11 of your packet by way of background, authorities have number of advisory committee. the plans and programs committee recommends and authority board appoints advisory committee meeting. on page 14 of your packet, you can see a list of folks submitted applications to be on the citizen's advisory committee. on page 13 you can see list of current members. you must be a san francisco residen
action. now, depending -- the pentagon has drawn up preliminary plans to send as many as 75,000 troops into syria to secure these chemical weapons sites, but as of just today there have been no signs that any of those forces have been put on alert or there was any detail planning to do this. so there was some question here of whether assad may be calling t president's bluff. >> rose: and what exactly do you think they would be prepared to do and what would trigger that? clearly the movement of them. but it is more or less than that? >> well, u.s. intelligence officials were watching very closely the movement of syrian forces and in also trying to divine the intentions of president assad. clearly the rebels in syria have had a very good few -- past few weeks and making advances on the capital of damascus and president assad really feels like his back may be up against the wall. but is he desperate enough now to play this card which would almost certainly draw some kind of western response. >> rose: one more time, the red line is simply moving the chemical weapons? >> well, this is inter
have been done, then lead to either one. there has to be an official action taken by the two bodies in order for a landmark to be designated and also for historic district to be designated. so, i'd like to have some consideration given by the commission to extending the liberalization of uses to contributory buildings in designated historic districts, of which i don't think there are any in western soma at the moment. i don't believe so. >> i don't believe so. >> okay. and the other approach might be to take a look at what kind of liberalization could be implemented for these types of buildings and there could be a difference between, for example, landmark buildings and contributory buildings. i think it's mainly -- the liberalization is aimed at uses i think and what can be allow and had what can't be allowed. and there might be consideration to tweaking that a bit for the plan in terms of what kinds of uses might be allowed and what kinds of uses might not be. so, that's a suggestion. and then just on -- this isn't directed to you, it's just a comment. on the overlap between the t
and commissioner murase for having that thought and then putting it into action. it's really important for our children and our students to take that pride andv honor. and we always want all of our children to feel like when they walk'?zom=u that they're all of who they are when they walk through that door and they don'tq [6 have to leave any part of themselves outside. thank you. >>/ç +i2 superintendent. >> superintendant carranza: i want to welcome you to this newgmñ?ñ? role and it's good to have you in this role as well. in addition to the work you're doing around restorative practices there are a number of schools3;w98 training for what we're calling behavioral rti. !
. it just gets a little circular, but i do agree that support should include actions or statements whether public or non-public. that are trying to urge or encourage a particular outcome. i think that is the point of "support." and i'm also trying to think through if you have got a committee under state law that you have a primarily formed committee. i know. right. that this is creating a new animal only under scintilla, but is requiring that animal to file reports. all right, i will just keep thinking about it. if we haven't figured out the definitions we should try to get that right. it's dangerous to have a definition here that is complicated and interconnected and say that the commission may further adopt presto clarify this. i think we should get it right and not rely on having to go back later and define by regwhere we already have a definition that is intended to be comprehensive. >> because we so seldom try to do things right the first time? >> we should try. i'm being supportive. i will shut up for a while. >> i think commissioner studley is correct that the issue of the words
such activity. they're also expected to discuss plans of action in case the launch happens. the diplomats are likely to request the security council to issue a strong condemnation. >>> police in central japan are trying to find some clues as to why a highway tunnel collapsed. they've searched the headquarters of the company that operates the highway. police suspect officials with central nippon expressway of professional negligence resulting in injury or death. officers also searched a maintenance facility and four other locations. hundreds of concrete panels fell from the tunnel's ceiling on sunday. they crushed three vehicles. nine people were killed. expressway officials say some of the bolts used to attach panels to the ceiling became loose. workers completed the tunnel in 1977. company officials say they have no records to indicate any bolts were ever replaced. they say crews only conducted visual checks. experts studying the collapse say the fact that the concrete ceiling slabs were connected may have been the reason so many of them came crashing down. central nippon expressway repr
encroachment. so that's the course of action i would like to propose that we take today. >> so that sounds to me like it's a motion to reject this resolution. >> yes. >> amend the resolution as a rejection. >> amend the resolution as a rejection. >> mr. gibner indicated that the resolution before us to --. >> either up or down. >> is to approve the encroachment. i think it would require a motion to amend the resolution to reject and then to forward that resolution to the board. >> correct. >> so there's a motion -- there is an amendment to the table to reject. are there any objections? so -- and then on the motion itself as amended to reject, are there any objections? >> that would be to forward the amended resolution to the board with a recommendation to adopt it. >> yes. so without objection. thank you. thank you, mr. gibner. miss miller, could you please call item no. 2? >> item no. 2 is a resolution approving the transfer of air space parcel agreements at 15 one-third street. >> thank you, and this item is sponsored by supervisor jane kim. supervisor kim. >> thank you for hearing
for american action and what would the action be? >> that's a great point. what we do know from all reports is that there's been a lot of planning going on, in case there is chemical weapons activity in syria, as the assad regime feels more and more pressure from the option. what that would be i don't know. i mean if you just are talking chemical weapons, you can go after delivery vehicles aircraft artillery. you could go after stockpiles. but then there's the danger of course, of releasing chemical weapons into the atmosphere which could harm people as well. you have to be very careful. perhaps boots on the ground. at this point i think that's a long way off. i don't think -- it would take a lot of boots on the ground, i believe. and i don't think that's one of the options that anybody is considering at this point. >> if there is action would it be alone by the united states or with allies? >> ideally, it would be with allies. when you get down to it who has the capability to do the sorts of things that would need to be done? you would hope it would be with allies. with

action on the ground that assad may be getting ready for an act of desperation which is using chemical weapons. >> joe, tell us what we know about this stock pile, where they might be and how is it possible for us to prevent them from using them, and is it fair to assume as the ambassador just said, that would be an act of desperation, a sign on his part, of genuine weakness? >> the syrian chemical weapon program has been around for 40 years. it really picked up steam in the 60s, and recently as the mid 90s. we had evidence that russian agents were helping assad secure chemical precursors. we know he has mustard agents, and seron and possibly vx, a more toxic and per citizen tent agent. he has scud missiles, and drop munitions and these are very deadly agents. a few drops on your skin will kill you. we've seen activity at some of the known chemical chemical weapons sites. does not seem is he for securing weapons withweapons but. that's why we heard the president say as directly as he can, the world is watching. if you use these weapons, there will be consequences. >> cenk: let's take t
possible action on draft regs governing the handling of complaints related to alleged violations and referrals from the task force. i'm not sure i'm not sure within that scope you could actually act to amend the regs for investigation and enforcement proceedings. it pay be a close call, but it may be dependent on whether you take final action tonight or not. i don't have any particular quarrel with the proposed edits to the general regs. if i could, for a moment, on your last comment on subsection i in section 4 chapter 4. in the event that there is a complaint that alleges both a sunshine violation and other improper activities of other sorts, i would hope that the staff-initiated complaint pursuant to the last section doesn't reveal any more or less than necessary for the processing of the sunshine-related complaint, because the regular complaint wouldn't be disclosed under current provisions in the event it's dismissed or doesn't get tie problem cause report, et cetera. i'm not sure that you want to reveal any more than you would otherwise, just because someone added a sunshin
and believe it's now time to take action and now i agree. this legislation is much more narrow in terms of the park code and other codes. it's narrower with the body parts included. in contrast to the parks and the port code there is no requirement than an offense ever charged as a misdemeanor. it can be infraction indefinitely. that is not the case in the port and the parks code. the legislation contains broad and blanket exemptions for festivals and street fairs and parades unlike the park code and today because civic center is a park it is illegal to be nude in civic center plaza even during pride. the code doesn't contain any exemption for that. my legislation does. in addition this legislation has no application to beaches or to private property. the castro and san francisco in general is a place of freedom, expression and acceptance, but those things do not mean that anything goes under any circumstance. freedom, expreagz and acceptance don't mean we don't have any standards of behavior whatsoever. this means people can't do whatever pops into their head no matter the impa
that urged supervisor wiener to take action at jane warner plaza. there is a time and place for everything and a central transit hub in a tourist district is not the place to break ground for public nudity. we should designate areas such as beaches and people are aware it's the norm and allow this to take place in those areas. thank you. >> thank you. before i get to the next speaker let me call a few more names. (calling speaker cards). >> and if i could say just before the next speaker if there are folks in the over flow room there are now seats available in this room if you would like to migrate in. next speaker please. >> good morning. my name is dennis spencer. i am here to support supervisor wiener's proposal to ban public nudity in districts and keeping for fairs and beaches and parades. i have been in business in the castro since 1982. i am a self employed hair dresser. over the last two years i seen a marked change with the introduction what is a nudist living room in the area. a small group of people have created an uncomfortable situation for the majority of the populat
is not encompassing enough to be able to take actions and instead of creating a ban and censoring people's behaviors and beliefs and we should look at that law, and see if we can make it more effective law. i don't think and the club doesn't think it's appropriate to act lewdly in public. however, we do see this as an opportunity for a better conversation and it has started a conversation in the gay community about the body face sm that we already experience and we don't think a ban is the right end to this discussion. thank you. >> thank you very much. mr. alexander. >> hello i am josh alexander. i live in the castro and i'm not a nudist but i oppose this ban. people say we need it because they're offended. well, i am offended. i am offended by this proposed legislation that i have to come to this hearing to speak up for freedom and diversity and san francisco values shouldn't be under attack by someone purporting to represent all districts, district eight. i am offended and legislation that ask people to mind their own business. one doesn't need to be a health professional and other people s

of the photographs of mathew brady and others. like the photographers of the civil war, whose equipment made action scenes impossible, homer preferred static group formations, and yet the feeling of directness in recording the ordinary lends to his work a special force. prisoners from the front, with its profound sense of the resignation, exhaustion, and human cost of war, evoked the admiration of both critics and the public and brought homer his first recognition as an artist. paris, december 1866. homer arrived for an extended visit and to see prisoners from the front and another of his civil war paintings that had been selected for showing at the universal exsition. enjoying the celrity of an artist whose work was well-received, he made the trip profit drawing parisian enes for harper's. homer must have been intrigued by the changes underway in french art and by what he saw in the galleries. with friends, he made several excursions into the countryside near paris, where he developed an eye for the light that would soon appear in his own paintings. after 11 months, he was ready to return to ameri
. this is not an armed drone. if the iranians brought it down, the u.s. will see that as a very aggressive action. last month, the iranians tried to shoot down a u.s. drone in the same place. almost exactly a year ago, the iranians brought down a high-tech drone, one used by the cia. that was inside iranian territory. as you said, this will raise tensions in a very sensitive area. u.s. has thousands of service members in the gulf, just a few miles from iran. and the u.s. continues to accuse iran of trying to develop a nuclear weapon. ron? paula? >> nick schifrin with the latest from london. thank you, nick. we'll see you in just a moment. >>> also from london, kate middleton, the duchess of cambridge, is hospitalized there, for a second day. doctors are keeping a close eye on the 30-year-old future queen of england, whose pregnancy was announced just yesterday. >> now, kate is suffering from a rare and severe form of morning sickness. the palace says she is expected to stay in the hospital for several days and will need a period of rest when she's released. we'll have more from london on the royal baby
of the housing action coalition. and i should say that i believe the project sponsors came to us in july and presented a project. this is sort of one of the surprises. we don't normally get involved in projects like this. we generally have a threshold of 10 units or greater. but they asked to present to us and we agreed to review it. and on behalf of the members of the endorsement committee, they liked the project. they liked it an awful lot. felt that it's exactly what you heard, it's good urban infill. it's good use of scarce land in san francisco. and, in fact, felt that this is a good looking design. and putting this development at this location to our members was a higher use of the land than preserving a 1960s land use pattern that is not very intensive. it doesn't make much sense any more. it is not an architecturally distinguished area there. this is a far better design. so, what our members said was we would support this project and endorse it subject to two conditions. that a landscaping plan be adopted and it looks like there is a well qualified landscape architect involved in
. i think that might be the best alternative course of action which you have outlined today here at the podium. so, mr. chair, i don't know if there's any more -- looks like supervisor wiener wants --. >> if we were, if the board was to reject the major encroachment are they able, i assume they could, if they wanted to, try to apply again in the future? >> yes, the applicant can reapply at some point in the future but normally on these rejections i believe they cannot reapply for one year. it still creates this problem where the building i believe was never final. they have a temporary certificate of occupancy that they are currently sitting on. i don't know right now. again, i leave that to the building department. from my understanding, based upon what the public have stated, that there are actually people residing in this building. >> and any negotiations to purchase the right of way that's been encroached on, that would also -- i know there are issues with the general plan, but that would also have to come to the board of supervisors for approval, correct? >> correct, th

-- >> uh-huh. megyn: -- in the absence of any command action to do the same could leave an objective observer feeling that the judge was not impartial. now, this is him, by the way, before he got charged with murder. you can see how important it was for him to have his beard before he got charged with murder. suddenly things changed once you have to be identified in court by the witnesses who say they saw you shoot and kill 13 people. but why -- is that true? were there no command action to him by his superiors in the military to shave the thing? >> no, that's the interesting nugget in all of this, is if it really is the responsibility -- which it is -- of the command and not the court to insure that he shaves his beard, then who's that commander? he didn't immediately move on forcing those standards. as you mentioned, this was not something he was doing in 2009, 2010 or 2011. just recently decided to do it as part of his delay in protest. you're a lawyer, i'm not, megyn, but i know a truism of defense attorneys is if the facts are against you, argue the law. if the law's against you
